Tradesocio is organizing the Financial Services Digital Transformation Forum on Tuesday 26th of November 2019 at the Four Seasons Hotel, in Limassol.
Digital transformation is being pushed to the mainstream by four main trends: regulation, enabling technology, competition and consumer demand. Organisations, more than ever, need to create sustainable operations within their infrastructure in order to cope with the requirements of the ever-evolving technologies and regulation, and adopt digital assets that can assist them in their long-term vision.
The Financial Services Digital Transformation Forum is addressed to C-Level Financial Services professionals from Forex, Asset Management, Investment Management, Investment Banking firms etc., and explores the challenges and opportunities that digital transformation is bringing with it. How can companies master digital transformation within, what solutions and technologies are currently available to assist them in their daily functions, and is the digital transformation the new corporate culture? These questions and more will be addressed at the forum via interactive presentations and panel discussions.
Five reasons to attend
● Explore the challenges of digital transformation and its impact on the financial services industry
● Find out via best practices and case studies how to increase productivity in a bid to achieve competitive advantage
● Learn how to leverage digital dynamics to compete in the digital era
